Lifetime Movie

After weeks and weeks of worry, the DFCS worker called and said she has some things for us to sign and our case will be closed. She offered to contact the school herself and make sure they understand that they investigated and could find no area to help us improve our environment or the care for our kids. They would be available to us for resources, as we request them. She didn't want any room for doubt with the school and would handle further referrals, should they come. She had one idea to help us with Michael and when we discussed it, she advised us to continue with what we were doing b/c it would be more effective. In other words, they can't think of a single thing for us to work on. Not one! She talked to me for 40 minutes about how great we are and how wonderful we are doing with each child. We talked about the trial and the toll it is taking on them. She said we were like a Lifetime Movie in the making and we were the most amazing family she has worked with.

Kudos, mom. Being investigated was *probably* worth the pat on the back. And maybe a movie deal. ;)

We once had a therapist tell us we should be on Dateline. Does that count?

That doesn't surprise me a bit, Rachel. The true pros can recognize another true pro in action. I admire you very much. Peace! Kathy

Jeez, Tudu. You almost make me jealous you got investigated...

I am leaving Friday to adopt my little one and might not be able to follow your blog. I have followed it from the very beginning when we were considering foster to adopt. I just wanted to say you are such a good mom and I am so proud of how far the kids are. Please tell them I said they are all very beautiful and your son is handsome.

Yeah!! You must feel so vindicated by DFCS acknowledging the awesome job you are doing under such difficult circumstances.
Your story would make a great movie. True life is always more interesting than fantasy world. Keep up the good work!
